Scooters at the Amelia Island Concours d' Elegance

The Amelia Island Concours d' Elegance has vintage motorcycles in a small display every year.  This year they had scooters.  My favorite was the Salsbury, they had two, but all were good.  Here they are.

  3. When Lee entered his 1949 Salisbury in the 2012 Cannonball we all went scrambling to Google to see what the hell it is. He and the 250cc Ninja motor won the Cannonball before we ever started because of the low handicap. Again we were all stunned when it made it all the way from Savannah to San Diego running very strong. I will send you pictures.

    1. He was brilliant in his execution. It ruined it for others who wanted to be competitive, winning by a 4000 points to 2500 ish, but he knew what he was doing.

    That's a pretty awesome gaggle of scooters. It's always amazing to see the variety of designs that emerged over the years. Not sure I want any, but sure cool to look at.

    1. I would take any of them, but still ride my modern Vespas.

  5. What? No Lambrettas? No Helixes?

    All those bikes are nice, if somewhat over-the-top quirky, but style-wise, Vespas and Lambrettas (OK maybe the Honda passport/90s, etc.) take the cake.

    1. Yes, David, the Vespas and Lambrettas are perfect scooters. But not quite old and rare enough to make this show...except for the one with a trailer.
